sorry.... they are usa made junk.

I've personally had the ICON leveling kit on my 2005 F-350 and loved it. I dont believe in coil spacers nor do I believe in going over a 2-3" block on my rear axle.... I'd rather save the extra money up and do it the right way, IMHO.

That truck they show pictures of is actually a member's on another forum. He swears that its great. If I'm remembering correctly he had that kit on an '08, and took it off and put it on his '10. He ran no trac bar drop or adj trac bar and said his axle did shift, but it wasn't enough for him to care. He actually had 37'' tires and that was a 350. I'm sure that kit would be fine, it looks almost identical to the ReadyLift coil spacer I just took out.

Just because your preference is icon dont mean everything else made is trash icon sells tei spacer which are about the same thing just go on the bottom side! I have a icon leveling kit with topgun spacers and its done right with 5.5" traction blocks done right IMHO! all USA made i hope you dont have a f350 becuase they have almost 4" rear blocks from the factory!

No your 250 block is about 1 7/8" and i think the exact height for the 350 is
3 5/8" so you will be nose high with 2.5" in front! most guys add 4" blocks and puts it about level give or take depending on the spring age.
